Playing Catchup

 

Yes, there is much catching up to do.


Long time....no stitching been going on here.


Visitors have been here entertaining us.


Our first visitor was Karen from Washington DC.
we visited many places with Karen
my favourite being the Victorian Gardens
of the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens.


Despite the long dry summer we have had
those gardens were lush with growth and deep, rich colours.
Oh, so different to the gentle colours of my own work.


Shades of every red and orange possible.


Fuchsia so beautiful against grey.
I find it so interesting that these colours speak so loudly to me
but I am unable to work with such vividness.

Today I am thinking back to that awful day fifteen years ago
and the families of all those victims.

  1. Welcome back!! These flowers are beautiful. Today indeed will long be a day when we all reflect and pay tribute to those who lost their lives as well we should. Peace to all of us.

  3. En France nous n'avons pas oublié cette journée d'horreur où nous voyions le peuple américain attaqué si cruellement! Pensées pour toutes les familles.

  4. Beautiful flowers and just the colours I love working with! However, I am reading a book called Slow Stitch by Claire Wellesley-Smith which is all about recycling and natural dyes - work very similar to yours and I am loving it! About to dye my first batch of thread in coffee and will be scavenging round the garden soon too for plants to use. Such a sad time for many. xx
